Share Market Live: Gold to retain its sheen in August, Silver likely to outperform this month
Gold prices in India witnessed a decent rally of nearly 2% in July. On Multi Commodity Exchange of India (MCX), gold got costlier by around ₹1,400 per 10 grams during the month.
The rally was driven by multiple factors that came in support of the yellow metal in the international market. The primary reason being the increasing expectations that major global central banks, including the US Federal Reserve and the European Central Bank, may be nearing the end of their current monetary policy tightening cycles.
Additionally, a softer US dollar after slower-than-expected rise in US inflation also lifted appeal for the yellow metal. (Read More)

Chintan Mehta of Abans Group on Precious Metal: One of the risks that precious metals face is signs of weak US labor markets and expectations that the FED won't change its policy rate this year.
Chintan Mehta CEO-Commodity, Abans Group: The overall market participation in gold and silver remains low as the focus shifts towards crucial U.S. nonfarm payrolls data, scheduled for release this Friday. The U.S. labor market has shown strength throughout the year, which has supported the Federal Reserve in implementing sharp rate hikes. However, there are some indications of weakness in the labor market, and a stronger-than-expected data release could prompt the central bank to adopt a more hawkish stance.
This morning, China's Caixin PMI was released, showing signs of contraction, with a slip to 49.2 in July from 50.5 in June due to slower output and weaker demand.
Despite comments from major central banks and signs of stability in the global economy, it is crucial to keep an eye on the final manufacturing PMI figures from European economies, which are due today. These figures will help gauge the strength of the global economy.
In the near future, precious metals face a two-way risk. The price gold and silver could rise on signs of weak US labor markets and expectations that the FED won't change its policy rate this year. On the other hand, if the US economy proves to be resilient and labor market conditions remain tight due to a soft landing, Gold and Silver may struggle to fend off the bearish pressure. This could result in a higher probability of a further rate hike in November or December, which will be more heavily discounted in the bullion market.
Currently, Gold is holding above crucial support levels of around ₹59,400. However, a decisive break below this support could expose a downside and bring prices around ₹58,400 levels.
On the upside, gold faces resistance at ₹60,000 levels, and if this resistance is breached, we may witness a rally up to ₹60,800.
Stock Market Updates Live: India's manufacturing sector activity eases for 2nd straight month in July: PMI

The July PMI data pointed to an improvement in overall operating conditions for the 25th straight month. In PMI parlance, a print above 50 means expansion while a score below 50 indicates contraction.
"The Indian manufacturing sector showed little sign of losing growth momentum in July as production lines continued to motor on the back of strong new order growth," said Andrew Harker, Economics Director at S&P Global Market Intelligence. (PTI)
Share Market Updates Live: India's 2023 gold demand could fall 10% to 3-year low - WGC
India's gold demand in 2023 could fall 10% from a year ago to their lowest in three years, as record high prices are dampening retail purchases, the World Gold Council (WGC) said on Tuesday.
The lower purchases in the world's second-biggest gold consumer could limit a rally in global prices. Falling demand for gold imports could also help to narrow India's trade deficit and support the rupee.
"We remain cautious about gold demand as it faces uncertainties due to elevated local prices and slowdown in discretionary spending," said Somasundaram PR, regional chief executive officer of WGC's Indian operations.
Demand could fall to 700 metric tons in 2023 from 774.1 metric tons a year ago, he said. (Reuters)

Sensex Today Live: Dhruva Advisors on GST queries on ESOPs: Any such transaction should not be subject to GST
Niraj Bagri, Partner, Dhruva Advisors on GST queries on ESOPs: The issue of taxability of ESOP being provided by the overseas / parent entity to the employee of Indian subsidiary company is being scrutinized and demand notices have been issued to the Indian company. The GST law expressly excludes transaction in securities from the purview of taxability. Therefore, any such transaction should not be subject to GST. Largely, it can be said that the Indian company is working merely on reimbursement mechanism wherein the amounts remitted to the foreign company is being collected / deducted from the salary paid to the employees. Hence, no service is received by the Indian company which can attract GST liability.
It is important that a suitable clarification is issued by the GST Council to nip the issue at bud. This would help in avoiding unnecessary litigation.

Share Market Updates Live: Even though Indian economy is in a sweet spot and it makes sense to remain invested, investors should be cautious in their fresh investment
Dr V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services: The resilience of the mother market US, where the rally is spreading to the broader market, is supporting global markets. But the rally is stretching valuations beyond comfort levels. Sensex is now trading at 25 times trailing one-year earnings. It is important to note that the rally is driven by PE expansion, not commensurate earnings growth. The FY 24 Q1 earnings growth is muted except in banking and refineries. Results indicate that rural demand is yet to pick up in a meaningful manner.
Even though the Indian economy is in a sweet spot and it makes sense to remain invested, investors should be cautious in their fresh investment, particularly in chasing low-grade small-caps.

Stock Market Live: World’s Biggest Market for Sub-$100 Million IPOs Booms in India
Small is beautiful in India’s market for initial public offerings after the disappointment of hyped mega-share sales.
From finance startup Paytm to the nation’s largest insurer, investors have lost money from those IPOs in the past two years. They’ve turned to companies offering up to just $100 million in stock sales, as India hosted 92 such listings this year, the most in the world, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.
Small firms are selling shares for their financing needs after interest rates surged, as they take advantage of a five-month market rally. While such listings tend to be saddled with poor trading liquidity and have lax disclosure rules, retail investors are ignoring those concerns, bidding more than 100 times what’s on offer for some IPOs.
“IPOs are a product of a bull run in stocks," said Abhishek Sharma, managing director at GYR Capital Advisors. “Greater retail and institutional investor participation is providing tailwinds to these companies." (Bloomberg)
